The actor says, "I am in Jammu right now. And as everyone knows that day before yesterday a drone attack took place here. Basically, a bomb blast happened via a drone. First of all, I wanted to inform everybody that yes I am safe and sound right now. But when this attack happened I was just next to it. Because I am right now staying in Army kent at my relative's place. The next wall where I am staying in the Air Force base. Around 2 in the night it took place and I really panicked and couldn't understand how to protect myself- should I just lie down on the floor or do what? I had never come across any such situation before."
